ROCKVILLE, Md. – More people, businesses and now municipalities are switching to electric vehicles and they’re getting an added incentive from Pepco.
Montgomery County is expected to get electric buses next year. Hyattsville was the first police department in the country to have an electric cruiser. Sergean Richardt Hartnett with the Hyattsville Police Department says it saves him from having to stop at a gas station and turns some heads around the city.
“The reactions, I would say, fluctuate between, ‘Is that really a police car?’ to ‘Wow, that is really neat.’ No gas, no oil, no maintenance. People are amazed by it,” said Sergeant Hartnett.
Pepco offers rebates on some electric vehicles and there are also federal tax incentives, as well.
